Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Tonight, we had a last-minute strategizing and review session to help prepare her for her test this Saturday. Since we focused so much on vocabulary and essay writing during previous sessions, she wanted help reviewing the math on the test. Her math skills are good already, but I think it was helpful for her to go through the math specific to the test. We went through each of the prep books, looking for things that were a little unfamiliar. I gave her a few arithmetic drills, so she could practice working quickly without errors. She did a few timed problem sets from practice tests. We looked at tricky geometry problems, how to find partial answers on multiple choice questions, ratio problem shortcuts, probability rules, and anything else that seemed to stump her. We also reviewed her vocabulary words one more time -- she has mastered most of the words she set out to learn. I am excited to hear back about her test results, and I wish her luck."
"Today, we focused on essays for the school applications. We discussed the results of her last test, and we made a game plan on how to improve."
"Vocabulary studying included methods, words, prefixes, suffixes, context, synonyms, and analogies. Math studying included proportions, word problems, geometry, percent, logic problems, and test practice problems."
